Hi Myrna...tryed your cheddar Parmesan potatoes, they were a great sucess, everyone loved them, especially my DH, he loves potatoes in and shape size or form, and could probably eat them for a main dish ... the only thing I changed was, I added lots of minced fresh garlic in with the melted butter, we are big garlic lovers here, and put garlic on just about everything ...my DH even eats them raw, also I added a bit more cheddar than the 4 ounces it called for, and doubled the recipe, as I was serving 8 people for dinner...This dish is simalar to scalloped potatoes, but mabey even better. Thanx for a great recipe...I will be making this again, soon :-)
These are really, really very tasty. I did add a little more cheddar only cause we like cheese. Have enough left over for nights meal. Frozen Groton's fish filets, and a salad. Many Thanks, will have these again and again.
